Elderly man threatened with machete during terrifying home invasion

An elderly man has been terrorised by two men who broke into his unit on the NSW Central Coast overnight.

The 78-year-old man was in his Lake Haven unit, when two men stormed the home and allegedly produced a firearm and machete just after 12am.

The men threatened the elderly man and demanded money and jewellery before fleeing the scene.


The first man is described as being about 165cm tall and was last seen wearing a khaki hooded jumper.

The second man is described as being tall and was last seen wearing jeans with a black handkerchief over his mouth.

Investigations continue.
